    The foods and drinks you consume have an impact on your risk of stroke. Drink tea regularly to prevent it.

    To protect yourself from a stroke, you should take a look at your lifestyle and habits. Because according to the German Stroke Help Foundation you can influence your own risk of stroke. For example, it is recommended to exercise more often, drink alcohol only in moderation, stop smoking and, if you are overweight, lose weight. You should also drink tea regularly, as this can also minimize the risk of a stroke.
